WHERE’S ANY ‘COST-BENEFIT’ ANALYSIS FOR ANY CCO?

WHERE’S ANY ‘COST-BENEFIT’ ANALYSIS FOR ANY CCO?

Given that recommendation 21A of the Right Royal CONJOB on Auckland regional governance stated:

“All Auckland Council’s major commercial trading and infrastructure activities should be undertaken through CCOs”

– don’t you think it would be fiscally responsible to provide at least ONE piece of research / ‘cost-benefit analysis’ which PROVES the ‘cost-effectiveness’ of the CCO model for the public majority?

Has ANYONE – EVER – gathered ANY FACTS to back the mantra?

If the Right Royal CONJOB has failed to provide any EVIDENCE of the ‘cost-effectiveness’ of CCOs – then haven’t they failed to do their job, given that their ‘Terms of Reference’ included maximising cost-effective solutions?

Or is the real reason for the $UPERCITY to create a bigger public trough – for bigger but fewer private snouts – mates of those who will give out the contracts???

NO SAY – NO PAY!

Consider disputing and witholding payment for ALL rates – Council /Regional Council /water and wastewater.

If central and/or local government are not going to exercise prudent stewardship over our hard-earned rates monies – why should we give them any?
